Skin lesions: If this has been a persistent lesion of the skin of the chest, it's time to see a dermatologist for definitive diagnosis.

Red bump: This may be a hemangioma which is a benign growth of tiny blood vessels called capillaries. These don't blanch when touched and are not likely to change or disappear. Of course a physician or dermatologist would have to inspect the spot to be sure.
